Stream “Revolusion,” the first single off Elliphant’s debut EP Look Like You Love It out April 1st!
Unapologetic and often outspoken, Elliphant has lived all over the world, including the streets of India as a teenager, and it’s exactly these unique life experiences that have led her to create such powerful material in the studio.
The lead track ‘Revolusion’ taken from her ‘Look Like You Love It’ Mad Decent EP, is a raw, in-your-face sonic assault that will leave you wanting more. Track was premiered today on Noisey.vice.com and can be streamed here.
‘Revolusion’ embodies Elliphant’s undeniable edge and desire to shake things up amongst an already complacent generation and is exactly what sets her apart from other female artists who dominate the charts.
Taking her new material on the road, Elliphant will be performing live in Brooklyn and Los Angeles in April and plans to tour more cities this summer.
More exciting news to come.

Out next Thursday on March 13th is ALIZZZ’s new 4-track EP, Sunshine! Sign-up for Mad Decent Premium to download the WAVs a week early.
Barcelona-based producer/DJ ALIZZZ is an absolute wizard when it comes to crossing over RnB, indie-pop and jersey club. Having released four EPs over the past two years with an impressive repertoire of remixes and edits along the way, ALIZZZ has been under the watchful eye of the modern music generation for some time now. Supported by likes of Ryan Hemsworth, Baauer, Canblaster, Diplo, Taku, Trippy Turtle and more, his new Sunshine EP epitomizes his unmistakable style and playful production technique.
All 4 tracks submerge you into an ocean of melodic RnB vibes, glittery synths and golden rays of jersey club as far as the eye can see. “Sunshine” is what the theme song of Rainbow Road in Mario Cart should have been, endlessly cheerful with a tinge of 80s soul to flavor the audio. ALIZZZ then brings in Santell on “I C U” to give us soulful track sugar coated with an irresistible R&B feel. Following suit, “That Gurl” lays down a futuristic beat underscored by a subtly sexy element of funk. Sunshine is then wrapped up ALIZZZ’s ode to lust at first site “What IF,” rounding out the EP with a harmonic, softer jersey club ballad. It’s ok, the obsession is mutual.
Now available for iTunes pre-order is Dawn Golden’s debut LP Still Life! Along with your purchase, you’ll instantly receive the lead single “All I Want.” Directed by Tyler T.

Pre-Order Still Life on iTunes!
Still Life gains its stark emotional perspective through some of the most unique production you’re likely to hear this year. In 2011, we released his 6-track EP, Blow. Since then, Dexter went on to release his first full-length Houses album in the spring of last year, garnering a smorgasbord of support that turned the eyes of the press onto his unique production style. Still Life carries all of the depth and emotional pull of Dawn Golden, combined with incredible production and unflawed, futuristic tracks.

As temperature raises in the North Hemisphere, So does the music.
Mad Decent takes a look at some of the craziest releases from the underground scenes all over the world, but with a twist, either made by or inspired by Latinos and their culture.
This post destinations: Chilean-Peruvian Moombahton, Venezuelan Tuki-Bass, Swedish/Colombian Zouk Bass,
Brazilian Rasterinha, Los Angeles’/San Basilio Cumbia and much more including new Munchi EP.
But before I even start with the music, I think it is very relevant to explain a situation in where people have perhaps gotten a confusion. Mad Decent is kind enough to support a lot of independent labels, and one of those is LATINO RESISTE.
Latino Resiste, in a well intentioned way, created a sub-label called Mal Dicen, focused on dancefloor EPs or Singles; however, keeping the philosophy of Latino Resiste all the music is being given for FREE.
Do NOT BUY anything that has not been released officially by the label. Again, Label is Latino Resiste.
With that being said, lets start with these avalanche of Latin Flavor, but I will make it cohesive, because in a way, all of them are related to Latino Resiste:
Venezuelan prodigy, WOST, a 14 y.o. producer who has been killing it lately unveils his RAPTOR EP, in where Tuki Bass also is blended with Salsa-Moombahton, even zouk basss.
You can grab the whole EP for FREE HERE
So, if you have no idea of what TUKI is; a short version could be This crazy Venezuelan version of Raptor House, that blends so many styles at an insane speed:
Juanito is a hell of a banger
Wost Ep also has Zouk Bass, but I believe it is safer to say, Swedish/Colombian producer Dance Kill Move has dropped an impressive EP Zouk Bass for FREE ( That you can grab it via Generation Bass labels) that has even gotten the attention of Buraka’s Branko.
Generation Bass, Lacroixx and LR are celebrating a whole ZOUK BASS week, so make sure you look around at the usual blogs to find much more wicked slow bass.
Next in line to keep the African Influence is the majestic collaboration between Palenke Soultribe and Son Palenque
The video was shot by my homie Sergio Zaraza in Barranquilla Carnivals.
And one of our next releases in the Latino Resiste/Mal Dicen catalog comes from Chile, but the video and song were shot in Peruvian Carnivals
This song would be set for FREE on March 14th!
Bacondo is one of the newest projects that blend Andean/Ethnic sounds with Bass.
The cheery on the top:
Our Last but not least, TWO whole albums:
First from the Rasterinha lords: Funk na Caixa & Xao got together, and Mad Decent has the pleasure to World Premiere it:
In this album Xao productions team with Funk na Caixa, as well UK baile funk lord BUMPS, as well as Portuguese Mala Noche & Comrade, Italian Ckrono & Slesh, and a whole army of Brazilians badass producers that will make this genre one of the hottest genre people will listen while the world cup take place!!!
The second one from MUNCHI himself
We’re excited to announce Dawn Golden’s debut LP coming out on Downtown / Mad Decent later this spring! On Monday, March 3rd an iTunes pre-order will be available with an instant download of the first single, “All I Want.”
Dawn Golden (formerly Dawn Golden & Rosy Cross), a solo electronic production and songwriting project helmed by Dexter Tortoriello of Houses, officially started in late 2010 when a series of Bandcamp demos caught Diplo’s attention with their stark emotion and forward-thinking production. A year later, we released his 6-track EP, Blow. Since then, Dexter went on to release his first full-length Houses album in the spring of laste year, garnering a smorgasbord of support that turned the eyes of the press onto his unique production style. Still Life carries all of the depth and emotional pull of Dawn Golden, combined with incredible production and unflawed, futuristic tracks. We’ve been blown away by him from the start.
Stream Dexter Tortoriello’s recent productions below and make sure to follow Dawn Golden to stay tuned for more exciting album announcements!
